Grateful..

Hi everyone and thanks for dropping in today! Today's card uses this weeks sketch from Mercy Kerin. Here is the sketch:



I really liked using this sketch. I like multiple panels..they're so much fun! I also thought I would try one of the flowers from Laurie's tutorial again since I am, obviously, the only one that cannot get my flowers to work..lol. I think it came out ok this time. Not perfect, but better than the last 20 that are in the garbage. {smile}

So, here is my card:


I really love working with Smokey Shadow card stock. The color just goes so well with other colors, do you agree? Here I used it with Rose Red (another favorite) and I like the way it came out. This was my first time using the "row" of bling. I've used the individual pearls before, but never the ones that are already strung together. I like them, though. All in all a fun card to create! 

That's it from me. Have a wonderful Thursday! Laters..

I think you did a great job with the flower! I haven't had a chance to try one of these yet nor have I ever used those flourishy bling things! It looks so elegant all together!
